Kinaheirwe is a farmer from Uganda and is a mother of one child. Her only child is now 20 years old and in secondary school five. She lost her first husband 13 years ago, and later remarried. Kinaheirwe and her husband are both small scale farmers. During her free time, she enjoys taking care of her family.
Nine years ago, Kinaheirwe began to experience troubling symptoms, including headaches, difficulty breathing, and neck pain. She was diagnosed with a goitre and needs surgery to prevent her symptoms from getting worse.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Kinaheirwe receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on November 10th at our medical partner’s care center. Surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This procedure will cost $293, and Kinaheirwe and her family need your support.
Kinaheirwe shared, “I have been in pain for a while and I wish to live a normal life again through the surgery. I will resume farming as soon as possible.”
